Copy of the speech John More referenced regarding China’s plans for America…
I’m very excited today, because the large-scale online survey sina.com that was
done for us showed that our next generation is quite promising and our Party’s
cause will be carried on. In answering the question, “Will you shoot at women,
children and prisoners of war,” more than 80 percent of the respondents
answered in the affirmative, exceeding by far our expectations .
Today I’d like to focus on why we asked sina.com to conduct this online
survey among our people. My speech today is a sequel to my speech last time
, during which I started with a discussion of the issue of the three islands ,
mentioned that 20 years of the idyllic theme of “peace and development” had
come to an end, and concluded that modernization under the saber is the only
option for China’s next phase. I also mentioned we have a vital stake overseas.
Today, I’ll speak more specifically on these two issues.
The central issue of this survey appears to be whether one should shoot at
women, children and prisoners of war, but its real significance goes far
beyond that. Ostensibly, our intention is mainly to figure out what the
Chinese people’s attitude towards war is: If these future soldiers do not
hesitate to kill even non-combatants, they’ll naturally be doubly ready and
ruthless in killing combatants. Therefore, the responses to the survey
questions may reflect the general attitude people have towards war.
Actually, however, this is not our genuine intention. The purpose of the CCP
Central Committee in conducting this survey is to probe people’s minds. We
wanted to know: If China’s global development will necessitate massive
deaths in enemy countries, will our people endorse that scenario? Will they
be for or against it?
As everybody knows, the essence of Comrade Xiaoping’s  thinking is
“development is the hard truth.” And Comrade Jintao  has also pointed out
repeatedly and empathetically that “development is our top priority,” which
should not be neglected for even a moment. But many comrades tend to
understand “development” in its narrow sense, assuming it to be limited to
domestic development. The fact is, our “development” refers to the great
revitalization of the Chinese nation, which, of course, is not limited to the land
we have now but also includes the whole world.
Why do we put it this way?
Both Comrade Liu Huaqing , one of the leaders of the old generation in our
Party, and Comrade He Xin , a young strategist for our Party, have
repeatedly stressed the theory regarding the shift of the center of world
civilization. Our slogan of “revitalizing China” has this way of thinking as its
basis. You may look into the newspapers and magazines published in recent
years or go online to do some research to find out who raised the slogan of
national revitalization first. It was Comrade He Xin. Do you know who He Xin
is? He may look aggressive and despicable when he speaks in public, with his
sleeves and pants all rolled up, but his historical vision is a treasure our Party
In discussing this issue, let us start from the beginning.
As everybody knows, according to the views propagated by the Western
scholars, humanity as a whole originated from one single mother in Africa.
Therefore, no race can claim racial superiority. However, according to the
research conducted by most Chinese scholars, the Chinese are different from
other races on earth. We did not originate in Africa. Instead, we originated
independently in the land of China. The Peking Man at Zhoukoudian that we
are all familiar with represents a phase of our ancestors’ evolution. “The Project
of Searching for the Origins of the Chinese Civilization” currently undertaken
in our country is aimed at a more comprehensive and systematic research on the
origin, process and development of the ancient Chinese civilization. We used to
say, “Chinese civilization has had a history of five thousand years.” But now,
many experts engaged in research in varied fields including archeology, ethnic
cultures, and regional cultures have reached consensus that the new discoveries
such as the Hongshan Culture in the Northeast, the Liangzhu Culture in
Zhejiang province, the Jinsha Ruins in Sichuan province, and the Yongzhou
Shun Emperor Cultural Site in Human province are all compelling evidence of
the existence of China’s early civilizations, and they prove that China’s ricegrowing agricultural history alone can be traced back as far as 8,000 to 10,000
years. This refutes the concept of “five thousand years of Chinese civilization.”
Therefore, we can assert that we are the product of cultural roots of more than a
million years, civilization and progress of more than ten thousand years, an
ancient nation of five thousand years, and a single Chinese entity of two
thousand years. This is the Chinese nation that calls itself, “descendents of Yan
and Huang,” the Chinese nation that we are so proud of. Hitler’s Germany had
once bragged that the German race was the most superior race on Earth, but the
fact is, our nation is far superior to the Germans.
During our long history, our people have disseminated throughout the
Americas and the regions along the Pacific Rim, and they became Indians
in the Americas and the East Asian ethnic groups in the South Pacific.
We all know that on account of our national superiority, during the thriving and
prosperous Tang Dynasty our civilization was at the peak of the world. We were
the center of the world civilization, and no other civilization in the world was
comparable to ours. Later on, because of our complacency, narrow-mindedness,
and the self-enclosure of our own country, we were surpassed by Western
civilization, and the center of the world shifted to the West.
In reviewing history, one may ask: Will the center of the world civilization shift
back to China?
Comrade He Xin put it in his report to the Central Committee in 1988: If the
fact is that the center of leadership of the world was located in Europe as of the
18th Century, and later shifted to the United States in the mid 20th Century,
then in the 21st Century the center of leadership of the world will shift to the
East of our planet. And, “the East” of course mainly refers to China.
Actually, Comrade Liu Huaqing made similar points in early 1980s. Based on
an historical analysis, he pointed out that the center of world civilization is
shifting. It shifted from the East to Western Europe and later to the United
States; now it is shifting back to the East. Therefore, if we refer to the 19th
Century as the British Century, and the 20th century as the American Century,
then the 21st Century will be the Chinese Century.
To understand conscientiously this historical law and to be prepared to greet the
advent of the Chinese Century is the historical mission of our Party. As we all
know, at the end of the last century, we built the Altar to the Chinese Century in
Beijing. At the very moment of the arrival of the new millennium, the collective
leadership of the Party Central Committee gathered there for a rally, upholding
the torches of Zhoukoudian, to pledge themselves to get ready to greet the
arrival of the Chinese Century. We were doing this to follow the historical law
and setting the realization of the Chinese Century as the goal of our Party’s
Later, in the political report of our Party’s Sixteenth National Congress, we
established that the national revitalization be our great objective and explicitly
specified in our new Party Constitution that our Party is the pioneer of the
Chinese people. All these steps marked a major development in Marxism,
reflecting our Party‘s courage and wisdom. As we all know, Marx and his
followers have never referred to any communist party as a pioneer of a certain
people; neither did they say that national revitalization could be used as a
slogan of a communist party. Even Comrade Mao Zedong, a courageous
national hero, only raised high the banner of “the global proletarian revolution,”
but even he did not have the courage to give the loudest publicity to the slogan
of national revitalization.
We must greet the arrival of the Chinese Century by raising high the banner of
national revitalization. How should we fight for the realization of the Chinese
Century? We must borrow the precious experiences in human history by taking
advantage of the outstanding fruition of human civilization and drawing lessons
from what happened to other ethnic groups.
The lessons include the collapse of communism in the former Soviet Union and
Eastern Europe, as well as the defeats of Germany and Japan in the past.
Recently there has been much discussion on the lessons of the collapse of
communism in the former Soviet Union and Eastern European countries, so I
will not dwell on them here. Today I’d like to talk about the lessons of Germany
As we all know, Nazi Germany also placed much emphasis on the education of
the people, especially the younger generation. The Nazi party and government
organized and established various propaganda and educational institutions such
as the “Guiding Bureau of National Propaganda,” “Department of National
Education and Propaganda,” “Supervising Bureau of Worldview Study and
Education,” and “Information Office,” all aimed at instilling into the people’s
minds, from elementary schools to colleges, the idea that German people are
superior, and convincing people that the historical mission of the Arian people
is to become the “lords of earth” that “rule over the world.” Back then the
German people were much more united than we are today.
Nonetheless, Germany was defeated in utter shame, along with its ally, Japan.
Why? We reached some conclusions at the study meetings of the Politburo, in
which we were searching for the laws that governed the vicissitudes of the big
powers, and trying to analyze Germany and Japan’s rapid growth. When we
decide to revitalize China based on the German model, we must not repeat the
mistakes they made.
Specifically, the following are the fundamental causes for the defeat of
Germany and Japan: First, they had too many enemies all at once, as they
did not adhere to the principle of eliminating enemies one at a time;
second, they were too impetuous, lacking the patience and perseverance
required for great accomplishments; third, when the time came for them to
be ruthless, they turned out to be too soft, therefore leaving troubles that
resurfaced later on.
Let’s presume that back then Germany and Japan had been able to keep the
United States neutral and had fought a protracted war step by step on the Soviet
front. If they had adopted this approach, gained some time to advance their
research, eventually succeeded in obtaining the technology of nuclear weapons
and missiles, and launched surprise attacks against the United States and the
Soviet Union using them, then the United States and the Soviet Union would
not have been able to defend themselves and would have had to surrender. Little
Japan, in particular, made an egregious mistake in launching the sneak strike at
Pearl Harbor. This attack did not hit the vital parts of the United States. Instead
it dragged the United States into the war, into the ranks of the gravediggers that
eventually buried the German and Japanese fascists.
Of course, if they had not made these three mistakes and won the war, history
would have been written in a different fashion. If that had been the case, China
would not be in our hands. Japan might have relocated their capital to China
and ruled over China. Afterwards, China and the whole of Asia under Japan’s
command would have brought into full play the oriental wisdom, conquered the
West ruled by Germany and unified the whole world. This is irrelevant, of
course. No more digressions.
So, the fundamental reason for the defeats of Germany and Japan is that history
did not arrange them to be the “lords of the earth,” for they are, after all, not the
most superior race.
Ostensibly, in comparison, today’s China is alarmingly similar to Germany back
then. Both of them regard themselves as the most superior races; both of them
have a history of being exploited by foreign powers and are therefore
vindictive; both of them have the tradition of worshipping their own authorities;
both of them feel that they have seriously insufficient living space; both of them
raise high the two banners of nationalism and socialism and label themselves as
“national socialism”; both of them worship “one state, one party, one leader,
and one doctrine.”
And yet, if we really are to make a comparison between Germany and China,
then, as Comrade Jiang Zemin put it, Germany belongs to “pediatrics”—too
trivial to be compared. How large is Germany’s population? How big is its
territory? And how long is its history? We eliminated eight million Nationalist
troops in only three years. How many enemies did Germany kill? They were in
power for a transient period of little more than a dozen years before they
perished, while we are still energetic after being around for more than eighty
years. Our theory of the shifting center of civilization is of course more
profound than the Hitler’s theory of “the lords of the earth.” Our civilization is
profound and broad, which has determined that we are so much wiser than they
Our Chinese people are wiser than the Germans because, fundamentally,
our race is superior to theirs. As a result, we have a longer history, more
people, and larger land area. On this basis, our ancestors left us with the two
most essential heritages, which are atheism and great unity. It was Confucius,
the founder of our Chinese culture, who gave us these heritages.
These two heritages determined that we have a stronger ability to survive than
the West. That is why the Chinese race has been able to prosper for so long. We
are destined “not to be buried by either heaven or earth” no matter how severe
the natural, man-made, and national disasters. This is our advantage.
Take response to war as an example. The reason that the United States
remains today is that it has never seen war on its mainland. Once its
enemies aim at the mainland, the enemies would have already reached
Washington before its congress finishes debating and authorizes the
president to declare war. But for us, we don’t waste time on these trivial
things. Comrade Deng Xiaoping once said, “The Party’s leadership is prompt
in making decisions. Once a decision is made, it is immediately implemented.
There’s no wasting time on trivial things like in capitalist countries. This is our
advantage.” Our Party’s democratic centralism is built on the tradition of great
unity. Although fascist Germany also stressed high-level centralism, they only
focused on the power of the country’s executive, but ignored the collective
leadership of the central group. That’s why Hitler was betrayed by many later in
his life, which fundamentally depleted the Nazis of their war capacity.
What makes us different from Germany is that we are complete atheists, while
Germany was primarily a Catholic and Protestant country. Hitler was only half
atheist. Although Hitler also believed that ordinary citizens had low
intelligence, and that leaders should therefore make decisions, and although
German people worshipped Hitler back then, Germany did not have the
tradition of worshipping sages on a broad basis. Our Chinese society has always
worshipped sages, and that is because we don’t worship any god. Once you
worship a god, you can’t worship a person at the same time, unless you
recognize the person as the god’s representative like they do in Middle Eastern
countries. On the other hand, once you recognize a person as a sage, of course
you will want him to be your leader, instead of monitoring and choosing him.
This is the foundation of our democratic centralism.
The bottom line is, only China, not Germany, is a reliable force in resisting the
Western parliament-based democratic system. Hitler’s dictatorship in Germany
was perhaps but a momentary mistake in history.
Maybe you have now come to understand why we recently decided to further
promulgate atheism. If we let theology from the West into China and
empty us from the inside, if we let all Chinese people listen to God and
follow God, who will obediently listen to us and follow us? If the common
people don’t believe Comrade Hu Jintao is a qualified leader, question his
authority, and want to monitor him, if the religious followers in our society
question why we are leading God in churches, can our Party continue to rule
Germany’s dream to be the “lord of the earth” failed, because ultimately, history
did not bestow this great mission upon them. But the three lessons Germany
learned from experience are what we ought to remember as we complete our
historic mission and revitalize our race. The three lessons are: Firmly grasp the
country’s living space, firmly grasp the Party’s control over the nation, and
firmly grasp the general direction toward becoming the “lord of the earth.”
Next, I’d like to address these three issues.
The first issue is living space. This is the biggest focus of the revitalization of
the Chinese race. In my last speech, I said that the fight over basic living
resources (including land and ocean) is the source of the vast majority of wars
in history. This may change in the information age, but not fundamentally. Our
per capita resources are much less than those of Germany’s back then. In
addition, economic development in the last twenty-plus years had a negative
impact, and climates are rapidly changing for the worse. Our resources are in
very short supply. The environment is severely polluted, especially that of soil,
water, and air. Not only our ability to sustain and develop our race, but even its
survival is gravely threatened, to a degree much greater than faced Germany
Anybody who has been to Western countries knows that their living space is
much better than ours. They have forests alongside the highways, while we
hardly have any trees by our streets. Their sky is often blue with white clouds,
while our sky is covered with a layer of dark haze. Their tap water is clean
enough for drinking, while even our ground water is so polluted that it can’t be
drunk without filtering. They have few people in the streets, and two or three
people can occupy a small residential building; in contrast, our streets are
always crawling with people, and several people have to share one room.
Many years ago, there was a book titled Yellow Catastrophes. It said that, due
to our following the American style of consumption, our limited resources
would no longer support the population and society would collapse, once our
population reaches 1.3 billion. Now our population has already exceeded this
limit, and we are now relying on imports to sustain our nation. It’s not that we
haven’t paid attention to this issue. The Ministry of Land Resources is
specialized in this issue.
But the term “living space” (lebensraum) is too closely related to Nazi
Germany. The reason we don’t want to discuss this too openly is to avoid the
West’s association of us with Nazi Germany, which could in turn reinforce the
view that China is a threat. Therefore, in our emphasis on He Xin’s new theory,
“Human rights are just living rights,” we only talk about “living,” but not
“space,” so as to avoid using the term “living space.” From the perspective of
history, the reason that China is faced with the issue of living space is because
Western countries have developed ahead of Eastern countries. Western
countries established colonies all around the world, therefore giving themselves
an advantage on the issue of living space. To solve this problem, we must lead
the Chinese people outside of China, so that they could develop outside of
The second issue is our focus on the leadership capacity of the ruling party.
We’ve done better on this than their party. Although the Nazis spread their
power to every aspect of the German national government, they did not stress
their absolute leadership position like we have. They did not take the issue of
managing the power of the party as first priority, which we have. When
Comrade Mao Zedong summarized the “three treasures” of our party’s victory
in conquering the country, he considered the most important “treasure” to be
developing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and strengthening its
We have to focus on two points to fortify our leadership position and improve
our leadership capacity.
The first is to promote the “Three Represents” theory , stressing that our
Party is the pioneer of the Chinese race, in addition to being the pioneer of the
proletariat. Many citizens say in private, “We never voted for you, the
Communist Party, to represent us. How can you claim to be our
There’s no need to worry about this issue. Comrade Mao Zedong said that if we
could lead our allies to victory and make them benefit, they would support us.
Therefore, as long as we can lead the Chinese people outside of China,
resolving the lack of living space in China, the Chinese people will support
us. At that time, we don’t have to worry about the labels of
“totalitarianism” or “dictatorship.” Whether we can forever represent the
Chinese people depends on whether we can succeed in leading the Chinese
people out of China.
The second point, whether we can lead the Chinese people out of China, is the
most important determinant of the CCP’s leadership position.
Why do I say this?
Everyone knows that without the leadership of our Party, China would not exist
today. Therefore, our highest principle is to forever protect our Party’s
leadership position. Before June 4, we realized vaguely that as long as China’s
economy is developed, people would support and love the Communist Party.
Therefore we had to use several decades of peacetime to develop China’s
economy. No matter what -isms, whether it is a white cat or a black cat, it is a
good cat if it can develop China’s economy. But at that time, we did not have
mature ideas about how China would deal with international disputes after its
economy is developed.
Comrade Xiaoping said then that the main themes in the world were peace and
development. But the June 4 riot gave our Party a warning and gave us a lesson
that is still fresh. The pressure of China’s peaceful evolution makes us
reconsider the main themes of our time. We see that neither of these two issues,
peace and development, have been resolved. The western oppositional forces
always change the world according to their own visions; they want to change
China and use peaceful evolution to overturn the leadership of our Communist
Party. Therefore, if we only develop the economy, we still face the possibility of
That June 4 riot almost succeeded in bringing a peaceful transition; if it were
not for the fact that a large number of veteran comrades were still alive and at a
crucial moment they removed Zhao Ziyang and his followers, then we all
would have been put in prison. After death we would have been too ashamed to
report to Marx. Although we have passed the test of June 4, after our group of
senior comrades pass away, without our control, peaceful evolution may still
come to China like it did to the former Soviet Union. In 1956, they suppressed
the Hungarian Incident and defeated the attacks by Tito’s revisionists of
Yugoslavia, but they could not withstand Gorbachev thirty some years later.
Once those pioneering senior comrades died, the power of the Communist Party
was taken away by peaceful evolution.
After the June 4 riot was suppressed, we have been thinking about how to
prevent China from peaceful evolution and how to maintain the Communist
Party’s leadership. We thought it over and over but did not come up with any
good ideas. If we do not have good ideas, China will inevitably change
peacefully, and we will all become criminals in history. After some deep
pondering, we finally come to this conclusion: Only by turning our developed
national strength into the force of a fist striking outward—only by leading
people to go out —can we win forever the Chinese people’s support and love
for the Communist Party. Our Party will then stand on invincible ground, and
the Chinese people will have to depend on the Communist Party. They will
forever follow the Communist Party with their hearts and minds, as was written
in a couplet frequently seen in the countryside some years ago: “Listen to
Chairman Mao, Follow the Communist Party!” Therefore, the June 4 riot
made us realize that we must combine economic development with
preparation for war and leading the people to go out! Therefore, since
then, our national defense policy has taken a 180 degree turn and we have
since emphasized more and more “combining peace and war.” Our
economic development is all about preparing for the need of war! Publicly
we still emphasize economic development as our center, but in reality,
economic development has war as its center! We have made a tremendous
effort to construct “The Great Wall Project” to build up, along our coastal
and land frontiers as well as around large and medium-sized cities, a solid
underground “Great Wall” that can withstand a nuclear war. We are also
storing all necessary war materials. Therefore, we will not hesitate to fight
a Third World War, so as to lead the people to go out and to ensure the
Party’s leadership position. In any event, we, the CCP, will never step down
from the stage of history! We’d rather have the whole world, or even the entire
globe, share life and death with us than step down from the stage of history!!!
Isn’t there a ‘nuclear bondage’ theory? It means that since nuclear weapons
have bound the security of the entire world, all will die together if death is
inevitable. In my view, there is another kind of bondage, and that is, the fate our
Party is tied up with that of the whole world. If we, the CCP, are finished, China
will be finished, and the world will be finished.
Our Party’s historical mission is to lead the Chinese people to go out. If we take
the long view, we will see that history led us on this path. First, China’s long
history has resulted in the world’s largest population, including Chinese in
China as well as overseas. Second, once we open our doors, the profit seeking western capitalists will invest capital and technology in China to
assist our development, so that they can occupy the biggest market in the
world. Third, our numerous overseas Chinese help us create the most favorable
environment for the introduction of foreign capital, foreign technology and
advanced experience into China. Thus, it is guaranteed that our reform and
open-door policy will achieve tremendous success. Fourth, China’s great
economic expansion will inevitably lead to the shrinkage of per-capita
living space for the Chinese people, and this will encourage China to turn
outward in search for new living space. Fifth, China’s great economic
expansion will inevitably come with a significant development in our
military forces, creating conditions for our expansion overseas. Even since
Napoleon’s time, the West has been has been alert for the possible
awakening of the sleeping lion that is China. Now, the sleeping lion is
standing up and advancing into the world, and has become unstoppable!
What is the third issue we should clinch firmly in order to accomplish our
historical mission of national renaissance? It is to hold firmly onto the big
“issue of America.”
Comrade Mao Zedong taught us that we must have a resolute and correct
political orientation. What is our key, correct orientation? It is to solve the issue
This appears to be shocking, but the logic is actually very simple.
Comrade He Xin put forward a very fundamental judgment that is very
reasonable. He asserted in his report to the Party Central Committee: The
renaissance of China is in fundamental conflict with the western strategic
interest, and therefore will inevitably be obstructed by the western countries
doing everything they can. So, only by breaking the blockade formed by the
western countries headed by the United States can China grow and move
towards the world!
Would the United States allow us to go out to gain new living space? First, if
the United States is firm in blocking us, it is hard for us to do anything
significant to Taiwan and some other countries! Second, even if we could
snatch some land from Taiwan, Vietnam, India, or even Japan, how much more
living space can we get? Very trivial! Only countries like the United States,
Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass
Therefore, solving the “issue of America” is the key to solving all other
issues. First, this makes it possible for us to have many people migrate
there and even establish another China under the same leadership of the
CCP. America was originally discovered by the ancestors of the yellow
race, but Columbus gave credit to the white race. We the descendents of
the Chinese nation are entitled to the possession of the land! It is said that
the residents of the yellow race have a very low social status in United
States. We need to liberate them. Second, after solving the “issue of
America,” the western countries in Europe would bow to us, not to
mention to Taiwan, Japan and other small countries. Therefore, solving the
“issue of America” is the mission assigned to CCP members by history.
I sometimes think how cruel it is for China and the United States to be enemies
that are bound to meet on a narrow road! Do you remember a movie about
Liberation Army troops led by Liu Bocheng and Deng Xiaoping? The title is
something like “Decisive Battle on the Central Plains.” There is a famous
remark in the movie that is full of power and grandeur: “The enemies are bound
to meet on a narrow road, only the brave will win!” It is this kind of fighting to
win or die spirit that enabled us to seize power in Mainland China. It is
historical destiny that China and United States will come into unavoidable
confrontation on a narrow path and fight each other! The United States,
unlike Russia and Japan, has never occupied and hurt China, and also
assisted China in its battle against the Japanese. But, it will certainly be an
obstruction, and the biggest obstruction! In the long run, the relationship
of China and the United States is one of a life-and-death struggle.
One time, some Americans came to visit and tried to convince us that the
relationship between China and United States is one of interdependence.
Comrade Xiaoping replied in a polite manner: “Go tell your government, China
and the United States do not have such a relationship that is interdependent and
mutually reliant.” Actually, Comrade Xiaoping was being too polite, he could
have been more frank, “The relationship between China and United States is
one of a life-and-death struggle.” Of course, right now it is not the time to
openly break up with them yet. Our reform and opening to the outside
world still rely on their capital and technology, we still need America.
Therefore, we must do everything we can to promote our relationship with
America, learn from America in all aspects and use America as an example to
reconstruct our country.
How have we managed our foreign affairs in these years? Even if we had to
put on a smiling face in order to please them, even if we had to give them
the right cheek after they had hit our left cheek, we still must endure in
order to further our relationship with the United States. Do you remember
the character of Wuxun in the movie the “Story of Wuxun”? In order to
accomplish his mission, he endured so much pain and suffered so much beating
and kicking! The United States is the most successful country in the world
today. Only after we have learned all of its useful experiences can we
replace it in the future. Even though we are presently imitating the
American tone “China and United States rely on each other and share
honor and disgrace,” we must not forget that the history of our civilization
repeatedly has taught us that one mountain does not allow two tigers to live
We also must never forget what Comrade Xiaoping emphasized “refrain from
revealing the ambitions and put others off the track.” The hidden message
is: we must put up with America; we must conceal our ultimate goals, hide
our capabilities and await the opportunity. In this way, our mind is clear.
Why have we not updated our national anthem with something peaceful? Why
did we not change the anthem’s theme of war? Instead, when revising the
Constitution this time, for the first time we clearly specified “March of the
Volunteers” is our national anthem. Thus we will understand why we
constantly talk loudly about the “Taiwan issue” but not the “American
issue.” We all know the principle of “doing one thing under the cover of
another.” If ordinary people can only see the small island of Taiwan in their
eyes, then you as the elite of our country should be able to see the whole picture
of our cause. Over these years, according to Comrade Xiaoping’s arrangement,
a large piece of our territory in the North has been given up to Russia; do you
really think our Party Central Committee is a fool?
To resolve the issue of America we must be able to transcend conventions
and restrictions. In history, when a country defeated another country or
occupied another country, it could not kill all the people in the conquered land,
because back then you could not kill people effectively with sabers or long
spears, or even with rifles or machine guns. Therefore, it was impossible to gain
a stretch of land without keeping the people on that land. However, if we
conquered America in this fashion, we would not be able to make many people
Only by using special means to “clean up” America will we be able to lead
the Chinese people there. This is the only choice left for us. This is not a
matter of whether we are willing to do it or not. What kind of special means is
there available for us to “clean up” America? Conventional weapons such as
fighters, canons, missiles and battleships won’t do; neither will highly
destructive weapons such as nuclear weapons. We are not as foolish as to want
to perish together with America by using nuclear weapons, despite the fact that
we have been exclaiming that we will have the Taiwan issue resolved at
whatever cost. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many
people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There has been
rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio weapons have
been invented one after another. Of course we have not been idle; in the past
years we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind. We are
capable of achieving our purpose of “cleaning up” America all of a sudden.
When Comrade Xiaoping was still with us, the Party Central Committee
had the perspicacity to make the right decision not to develop aircraft
carrier groups and focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can
eliminate mass populations of the enemy country.
From a humanitarian perspective, we should issue a warning to the
American people and persuade them to leave America and leave the land
they have lived in to the Chinese people. Or at least they should leave half
of the United States to be China’s colony, because America was first
discovered by the Chinese. But would this work? If this strategy does not
work, then there is only one choice left to us. That is, use decisive means to
“clean up” America, and reserve America for our use in a moment. Our
historical experience has proven that as long as we make it happen, nobody
in the world can do anything about us. Furthermore, if the United States as
the leader is gone, then other enemies have to surrender to us.
Biological weapons are unprecedented in their ruthlessness, but if the
Americans do not die then the Chinese have to die. If the Chinese people are
strapped to the present land, a total societal collapse is bound to take place.
According to the computation of the author of Yellow Peril, more than half of
the Chinese will die, and that figure would be more than 800 million people!
Just after the liberation, our yellow land supported nearly 500 million people,
while today the official figure of the population is more than 1.3 billion. This
yellow land has reached the limit of its capacity. One day, who knows how soon
it will come, the great collapse will occur any time and more than half of the
population will have to go.
We must prepare ourselves for two scenarios. If our biological weapons
succeed in the surprise attack [on the United States, the Chinese people will
be able to keep their losses at a minimum in the fight against the United
States. If, however, the attack fails and triggers a nuclear retaliation from the
United States, China would perhaps suffer a catastrophe in which more than
half of its population would perish. That is why we need to be ready with air
defense systems for our big and medium-sized cities. Whatever the case may
be, we can only move forward fearlessly for the sake of our Party and state and
our nation’s future, regardless of the hardships we have to face and the
sacrifices we have to make. The population, even if more than half dies, can be
reproduced. But if the Party falls, everything is gone, and forever gone!
In Chinese history, in the replacement of dynasties, the ruthless have
always won and the benevolent have always failed. The most typical example
involved Xiang Yu the King of Chu, who, after defeating Liu Bang, failed to
continue to chase after him and eliminate his forces, and this leniency resulted
in Xiang Yu’s death and Liu’s victory (during the war between Chu and Han,
just after the Qin Dynasty (221-206BC) was overthrown). Therefore, we must
emphasize the importance of adopting resolute measures. In the future, the two
rivals, China and the United States, will eventually meet each other in a narrow
road, and our leniency to the Americans will mean cruelty toward the Chinese
people. Here some people may want to ask me: what about the several
millions of our compatriots in the United States? They may ask: aren’t we
against Chinese killing other Chinese?
These comrades are too pedantic; they are not pragmatic enough. If we had
insisted on the principle that the Chinese should not kill other Chinese, would
we have liberated China? As for the several million Chinese living in the United
States, this is of course a big issue. Therefore in recent years, we have been
conducting research on genetic weapons, i.e. those weapons that do not kill
yellow people. But producing a result with this kind of research is extremely
difficult. Of the research done on genetic weapons throughout the world,
the Israeli’s is the most advanced. Their genetic weapons are designed to
target Arabs and protect the Israelis. But even they have not reached the
stage of actual deployment. We have cooperated with Israel on some
research. Perhaps we can introduce some of the technologies used to
protect Israelis and remold these technologies to protect the yellow people.
But their technologies are not mature yet, and it is difficult for us to
surpass them in a few years. If it has to be five or ten years before some
breakthroughs can be achieved in genetic weapons, we cannot afford to
wait any longer.
Old comrades like us cannot afford to wait that long, for we don’t have that
much time to live. Old soldiers of my age may be able to wait for five or ten
more years, but those from the period of the Anti-Japanese War or the few old
Red Army soldiers cannot wait any longer. Therefore we have to give up our
expectations about genetic weapons. Of course, from another perspective, the
majority of those Chinese living in the United States have become our burden,
because they have been corrupted by the bourgeois liberal values for a long
time and it would be difficult for them to accept our Party’s leadership. If they
survived the war, we would have to launch campaigns in the future to deal with
them, to reform them. Do you still remember that when we had just defeated
the Koumintang (KMT) and liberated Mainland China, so many people from
the bourgeois class and intellectuals welcomed us so very warmly, but later we
had to launch campaigns such as the “suppression of the reactionaries” and
“Anti-Rightist Movement” to clean them up and reform them? Some of them
were in hiding for a long time and were not exposed until the Cultural
Revolution. History has proved that any social turmoil is likely to involve many
deaths. Maybe we can put it this way: death is the engine that moves history
forward. During the period of Three Kingdoms , how many people died?
When Genghis Khan conquered Eurasia, how many people died? When
Manchu invaded the interior of China, how many people died? Not many
people died during the 1911 Revolution, but when we overthrew the Three
Great Mountains , and during the political campaigns such as “Suppression
of reactionaries,” “Three-Anti Campaign,” and “Five-Anti Campaign” at least
20 million people died. We were apprehensive that some young people today
would be trembling with fear when they hear about wars or people dying.
During wartime, we were used to seeing dead people. Blood and flesh were
flying everywhere, corpses were lying in heaps on the fields, and blood ran like
rivers. We saw it all. On the battlefields, everybody’s eyes turned red with
killing because it was a life-and-death struggle and only the brave would
It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans. But that is
the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the
CCP leads the world. We, as revolutionary humanitarians, do not want deaths.
But if history confronts us with a choice between deaths of Chinese and those
of Americans, we’d have to pick the latter, as, for us, it is more important to
safeguard the lives of the Chinese people and the life of our Party. That is
because, after all, we are Chinese and members of the CCP. Since the day we
joined the CCP, the Party’s life has always been above all else! History will
prove that we made the right choice.
Now, when I am about to finish my speech, you probably understand why
we conducted this online survey. Simply put, through conducting this
online survey we wanted to know whether the people would rise against us
if one day we secretly adopt resolute means to “clean up” America. Would
more people support us or oppose us? This is our basic judgment: if our
people approve of shooting at prisoners of war, women and children, then
they would approve our “cleaning up” America. For over twenty years,
China has been enjoying peace, and a whole generation has not been tested by
war. In particular, since the end of World War II, there have been many changes
in the formats of war, the concept of war and the ethics of war. Especially since
the collapse of the former Soviet Union and Eastern European Communist
states, the ideology of the West has come to dominate the world as a whole, and
the Western theory of human nature and Western view of human rights have
increasingly disseminated among the young people in China. Therefore, we
were not very sure about the people’s attitude. If our people are fundamentally
opposed to “cleaning up” America, we will, of course, have to adopt
Why didn’t we conduct the survey through administrative means instead of
through the web? We did what we did for a good reason.
First of all, we did it to reduce artificial inference and to make sure that we got
the true thoughts of the people. In addition, it is more confidential and won’t
reveal the true purpose of our survey. But what is most important is the fact that
most of the people who are able to respond to the questions online are from
social groups that are relatively well-educated and intelligent. They are the
hard-core and leading groups that play a decisive role among our people. If they
support us, then the people as a whole will follow us; if they oppose us, they
will play the dangerous role of inciting people and creating social disturbance.
What turned out to be very comforting is they did not turn in a blank test
paper. In fact, they turned in a test paper with a score of over 80%. This is
the excellent fruition of our Party’s work in propaganda and education over the
past few decades.
Of course, a few people under the Western influence have objected to shooting
at prisoners of war and women and children. Some of them said, “It is shocking
and scary to witness so many people approving of shooting at women and
children. Is everybody crazy?” Some others said, “The Chinese love to label
themselves as a peace-loving people, but actually they are the most ruthless
people. The comments are resonant of killing and murdering, sending chills to
Although there are not too many people holding this kind of viewpoint and they
will not affect the overall situation in any significant way, but we still need to
strengthen the propaganda to respond to this kind of argument.
That is to vigorously propagate Comrade He Xin’s latest article, which has
already been reported to the central government. You may look it up on the
If you get on the website using key words to search, you will find out that a
while ago, comrade He Xin pointed out to the Hong Kong Business News
during an interview that: “The US has a shocking conspiracy.” According to
what he had in hand, from September 27 to October 1, 1995, the Mikhail
Sergeevich Gorbachëv Foundation, funded by the United States, gathered 500
of the world’s most important statesmen, economic leaders and scientists,
including George W. Bush (he was not the US president at the time), the
Baroness Thatcher, Tony Blair, Zbigniew Brzezinski, as well as George Soros,
Bill Gates, futurist John Naisbitt, etc., all of the world’s most popular
characters, in the San Francisco Fairmont hotel for a high-level round table
conference, discussing problems about globalization and how to guide
humanity to move forward into the 21st century. According to what He Xin
had in hand, the outstanding people of the world in attendance thought
that in the 21st century a mere 20% of the world’s population will be
sufficient to maintain the world’s economy and prosperity, the other 80%
or 4/5 of the world’s population will be human garbage unable to produce
new values. The people in attendance thought that this excess 80%
population would be a trash population and “high-tech” means should be
used to eliminate them gradually.
Since the enemies are secretly planning to eliminate our population, we
certainly cannot be infinitely merciful and compassionate to them. Comrade He
Xin’s article came out at the right time, it has proven the correctness of our tit
for tat battle approach, has proven Comrade Deng Xiaoping’s great foresight to
deploy against the United States military strategy.
Certainly, in spreading Comrade He Xin’s views, we cannot publish the
article in the party newspapers, in order to avoid raising the enemy’s
vigilance. He Xin’s conversation may remind the enemy that we have
grasped the modern science and technology, including “clean” nuclear
technology, gene weapons technology as well as biological weapons
technology, and we can use powerful measures to eliminate their
population on a large-scale.
The last problem I want to talk about is of firmly seizing the preparations for
Currently, we are at the cross road of moving forward or backward. Some
comrades saw problems flooding everywhere in our country—the corruption
problem, the state-owned enterprise problem, the bank’s bad accounts problem,
environmental problems, society security problems, education problems, the
AIDS problem, various appeals problem, even the riots problem. These
comrades vacillated in the determination to prepare for the military battle. They
thought; they should first grab the political reform problem, that is, our own
political reform comes first. After resolving the domestic problems, we can then
deal with the foreign military battle problem.
This reminds me of the crucial period in 1948 in the Chinese revolution. At that
time, the People’s Liberation Army’s “horses were drinking water” in Yangtze
River, but they faced extremely complex situations and difficult problems
everywhere in the liberated areas, and the central authority received emergency
reports daily. What to do? Should we stop to manage rear areas and internal
matters first before moving forward, or press on to pass the Yangtze River with
one vigorous effort? Chairman Mao, with his extraordinary wisdom and mettle,
gave the marching order “Carry on the revolution to the end,” and liberated all
of China. The previously thought “serious” conflicting problems were all
resolved in this great forward moving revolutionary wave.
Now, it seems like we are in the same critical period as the “horses were
drinking water” in the Yangtze River days in the revolutionary era, as long as
we firmly seize the most basic principle of preparing for the military battle. The
central committee believes, as long as we resolve the United States problem
at one blow, our domestic problems will all be readily solved. Therefore,
our military battle preparation appears to aim at Taiwan, but in fact is
aimed at the United States, and the preparation is far beyond the scope of
attacking aircraft carriers or satellites.
Marxism pointed out that violence is the midwife for the birth of the new
society. Therefore war is the midwife for the birth of China’s century. As war
approaches, I am full of hope for our next generation.

The on-line survey was launched by sina.com’s branch Sina Military
(jczs.sina.com.cn). It started on February 2 and ended on March 1, 2004 and
there were 31,872 persons who filled out the survey. The web page for this online survey is at “http://jczs.sina.com.cn/2004-02-02/1644180066.html” but this
page has been removed and cannot be viewed.
The question was “If you are a solider, and if are under the orders of your
commanding officers, will you shoot at women, children and prisoners of war?”
34% of the visitors answered they would shoot under any circumstances even
without permission from their commanding officer. 48.6% of the visitors
replied that they would shoot when the lives of themselves or their companies
are threatened. Only 3.8% of the participants held they would not shoot under
any circumstances. Those who agreed to shoot were mostly under the age of 25.

 “Three Represents” states that the CCP represents the requirement to
develop advanced productive forces, an orientation towards advanced culture,
and the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people in
China. It was put forward by Jiang Zemin, former Chinese president.
 Three Kingdoms refer to Wei, Shu, and Wu, three countries that overlapped
